This fall, executive representatives of participating AmChams will gather in beautiful Sofia, Bulgaria for the annual European Conference. The ACE community of 45 AmChams from 43 countries will meet to share their best practices and ideas, and at the end decide which AmCham came up with the absolute best approach to award them with the Creative Network Award.
A three-day conference benefits the participants not only because they get to learn about their colleagues’ best practices, but also because they have the opportunity to learn how to adapt these methods to their own country’s characteristics. This will also be a chance to connect within the network, facilitate tighter cooperation, and exchange opinions on the pressing issues of today’s world.
ACE European Best Practice Conference
The European Conference is traditionally hosted by one of the AmChams in Europe members and focuses on facilitating the exchange of best practices and knowledge, as well as discussing relevant issues impacting AmChams and their members from across Europe and wider regions.
ACE Creative Network Award
The award is given out to the best project or practice in various categories, ranging from membership and management, advocacy and impact, communication, to marketing creative initiatives and programs.
The winner of the 2019 Creative Network Award for the best practice was AmCham Belgium with its innovative #MemberMonday social media campaign. The project allowed for the Chamber to better engage with its members by creating fun videos that better connected them to their members and the community as a whole.
The ACE Creative Network Award was established in 2014 with the aim of incentivizing AmChams to share creative initiatives and projects for the benefit of AmChams throughout the ACE network, with the intention of fostering an exchange of innovative ideas.
